Break the Rules

If you like gachas, but hate the dreaded lag, endless full sims, or duplicate commons that come from such machines, then you should probably check out the new PocketGacha event. I picked up these new sneakers from Vale Koer, one of the sponsors of this new event and I confess, it is the most painless gacha experience I have ever had.

If you’re just now hearing about it, PocketGacha is a monthly gacha event that is completely HUD based. This means no more fighting lag or waiting for the usual sim campers to get their shit and get out. You can shop pretty much anywhere.

Here’s how it works:

  • Grab your PocketGacha HUD. You can do this on the SL Marketplace, at the PocketGacha Headquarters or via the inworld group. If you join the group, you’ll automatically receive the HUD on the 15th of each month.
  • You can choose to play the gachas via your HUD with either Lindens or Tokens. For those of you that are unsure about giving access to your Lindens to the HUD itself, you can purchase tokens from the PocketGacha HQ at a non-refundable 1:1 transfer rate. The tokens will then be added to your HUD for easy play. Oh, and don’t worry, they rollover!
  • Finally, you can flip through the HUD catalog and pay to play each gacha, or if you prefer, you can buy the entire set outright. I definitely love this idea for the savings alone!

The HUD is super easy to use, and as you can see offers a way to search, sort and manage your favorite gachas for each round. It also offers help, landmarks and useful information about this newest event.

So, what do you think about the new concept of PocketGacha?

Caribbean Heat

I don’t know what the rest of the world is like, but boy has it been hot! With Summer clearly in full swing weeks before the official start of the season, I am sure we are all feeling the heat one way or another. But hey, at least there are cute outfits in both RL and SL to help beat the heat.

Addams has released this new lace, bohemian inspired romper at the mainstore. It comes in like, a bazillion colors (forty mix and match w/ fatpack) and sleeve on/off options. It’s super cute, super cool and perfect for those long, and hot summer days!

Walk the Line

While rompers for men may be a bit questionable of late, these fashion staples never seem to go out of style for us ladies. Tetra has yet to create a piece that I love and the new ‘Formation’ playsuit at the current round of Collabor88 only affirms all the things that I love about them.

I am also loving the new release hairs from Truth, currently at the mainstore. Lake is the super straight style that features the amazing new textures I talked about here, as well as the stylist HUD, which allows wearers to pull the hair on each side either forward or back.

Tetra – Formation Playsuit (black) NEW RELEASE @ Collabor88
Truth Hair – Lake (selection) NEW RELEASE @ the Mainstore
